Many manufacturers require what is referred to as a template to produce custom wood blinds for an arched window. This type of customization either can have fan top slats or the slats can be horizontal all the way to the top. In either case, a template may be required, and making it correctly will ensure that your arch wood blind fits properly.
So, without further adieu, here are steps for making a template:
To create a template you will need a sheet of paper that will allow light to show through and is large enough to cover the opening (we recommend craft or butcher paper).
It is also a great idea to make and keep a second copy for yourself from the first as we have seen more than one template lost in the busy shuffle of a manufacturer's shop. Within 2-4 weeks, you should be able to enjoy your arch shaped wood blind which matches the other wood blinds on your standard "right angle" windows.
